Hello to new customers and staff in QLD

This week, we welcomed new faces (that’s both customers and staff) who have transferred over from The Salvation Army in QLD.

In 2017, we welcomed customers and staff from the New South Wales Government.

This year, we also welcomed staff and customers from the Victorian Government.

And this week, we said a big hello to 81 new customers and 107 staff from The Salvation Army’s disability services in Brisbane and Toowoomba, in Queensland.

The Salvation Army have been looking at their entire disability service portfolio across the states and territories they operate in. They wanted to do right by their customers, and felt it was in their customers’ best interest if they found a disability services specialist to take on their services.

Enter Aruma.

“We’re committed to ensuring people live a great life. A life that they want and choose. We feel very privileged to have been chosen by The Salvation Army to take on their services,” said John Jensen, Aruma’s Queensland General Manager.

“It’s been great getting to know new faces over the past few weeks. To our new customers – we look forward to being your trusted partner. And to our new colleagues – we’re excited to have you as part of the Aruma team.”

The transfer from The Salvation Army to Aruma was announced on 15 August 2019. Since then, the two organisations have worked closely together to ensure a smooth transition for all involved.
